Grants and Subsidies
Gambling Community Benefit Fund
The Gambling Community Benefit Fund (GCBF) has been providing one-off grants of up to $35,000 to eligible community groups for 25 years now.
Annually the Queensland Government provides around $55 million in grants.
Locally we have seen many different community groups receive funding for things like solar panels and air-conditioning, through to lawn mowers and utes.
